Nigerian traditional weddings are most times centered by the tears of the bride and her parents due to both parties finally saying their good bye to each other.
But, guests at a wedding and Facebook users, when a photographer identified as, Beta Adewale Adediran shared a photo on his Facebook page which showed the groom shedding tears as he perches on his parents legs.
The image caption reads: “Have you ever seen where a groom cried because he was getting married and would leave his parents? No? Ok i saw one on [your] behalf, his name is Oladapo David Ifeoluwa”
Grooms sometimes cry at their weddings, while watching the bride walk down the aisle or just being overcome with emotions while reading the wedding vows. It is hardly ever heard that a groom tears up because he can’t bear to leave his folks.
Traditionally, this is an emotion which finds expression in women rather than men.
But then, it’s OK to cry. It’s fine to shed tears when you feel like it. And we can’t for a second take that away for this trending groom.
We just hope he quickly got over it and had the time of his life on his and his bride’s big day!.
